All of the sights, none of the detail,
This review is from: DK Eyewitness Travel Guide: France (Vinyl Bound)
This book was purchased for me by a well meaning relative. It has the usual Eyewitness Guides layouts and is extremely well presented.
The problem is that a book that covers such a large subject will by definition spread itself thinly. The information presented appears accurate to my non expert eyes but to get a decent feeling for particular areas, towns and regions it must be better (if more expensive) to buy more local guides.
I do thoroughly recommend Eyewitnesses French regional guides but do check out Rough Guides for a different point of view.
